ANCHOR BOOKS (DOUBLEDAY)
About this series:
Anchor Books, the first "quality" paperback series aimed at the college market and "intellectual" segment of the general public, were launched by Doubleday and Sons in 1953.
The brainchild of Jason Epstein, then just 25 years old and a wunderkind of the American publishing industry, Anchor Books were priced at 65c to 95c each and featured dignified cover art and were printed on regular book paper (in contrast to the cheap paperback series from publishers such as Pocket Books, Bantam and the New American Library, whose books with popular content (such as crime, mystery and Wild West adventures) were priced at around 25c each, featured sensational covers, and were sold in drug stores and in grocery stores but not in normal bookstores).
Anchor Books published, using mass market techniques, paperbacks on serious topics that previously mainly appeared as academic or trade hardbacks. Anchor were quality mass market books in contrast to the cheaper mass market paperbacks from Pocket Books, Bantam, NAL, Fawcett, Dell, Ballantine, Avon, Berkley, Pyramid, Popular Library, Perma, and similar publishers of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.
In 1954 Anchor Books won the prestigious Carey-Thomas Award for creative book publishing.
'Anchor Books' were first published in April, 1953. Jason Epstein... had conceived the idea of a reprint line of serious fiction and nonfiction and wrote a long report on its possibilities which he submitted to Doubleday. Based on his observations of the market trends for 'Penguin,' 'Pelican' and 'Mentor' titles,... his study consisted of ... and evaluation of the book market; he discussed the growing college population, and a smaller section of the general public, as potential buyers.
[The 'Anchor Books' series has] several significant characteristics. The paper is of heavier stock than that of the cheaper lines, the covers are of more durable, non-glossy quality, covers use modernistic designs instead of portrait illustrations...
By 1957, 119 'Anchor' titles had been released, and it is the publisher's intention to keep them in print, as the series is intended for the permanent collection of the serious reader. (...)
[Apart from reprints], [o]ver two dozen publications are 'Anchor Originals,' consisting of new titles or new translations or anthologies. The series also includes a literary periodical 'The Anchor Review,' edited by Melvin J. Lasky.
